Let's try it with the changed API... If you'd like to give it a go that would be great!

If we do a sourceAsDTO() then we should also have a targetAsDTO() I think. That would allow
you to convert to any class but then only looking at its public instance fields and treating
it as a DTO...

WDYT?

static fields etc.

This is a non-ambiguous way to signal to the Converter to treat any Object as if it were a
DTO (at the risk of the caller).
